Summer Fun, Day 89: Visit Longwood Gardens

Spend the day exploring the beautiful Longwood Gardens in nearby Kennett Square, Pa.

longwoodgardensLongwood has plenty for families to do, and everything but the Children’s Garden and Conservatory Music Room are open.

Longwood also offers almost 40 indoor and outdoor gardens. Check out carnivorous plants in the Fern Passage, aquatic flowers at the Waterlily Display or the view from any of the three giant tree houses. There are miles of walking and hiking trails among the native wildflower plantings, a farmhouse and gallery and four leaning pavilions.

While visiting, make sure you catch a fountain show, a Longwood tradition featuring 750 jets of colorful water set to music. The shows are 5 minutes long and run every hour daily starting at 10 a.m.

Longwood Gardens is open Wednesday–Monday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m., with extended hours through 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

**Advance purchase, Timed entry passes are required, and are available on the website.**

Tickets cost $25 for adults and $13 for ages 5 to 18. Children 4 and under are free.

You can see their reopening plans and COVID policies here.
